Fortado is an intense and full-bodied blend made of Indian Robusta and South and Central American Arabicas. The bitter cocoa powder notes and the oak wood hints reinforce the richness of this coffee.
We chose a naturally processed Indian Robusta for its high-end quality and unmatched intensity and full body. If you’re tasting those cocoa and oak wood notes - that’s the Washed Colombian Arabica we blended with the Robusta. Vertuo Fortado is the Arabica and Robusta coffee blend that comes at you in full force.
This Vertuo coffee capsule is split roasted. It gives you all that Robusta intensity without any harshness. A long roast at medium temperatures brings out that intensity in the Indian Robusta. We roast the Arabica dark and long to develop those rich cocoa and oak wood notes.
This Vertuo coffee owes its intensity and full body first to the Robusta. Robusta also adds thickness to Fortado’s coffee crema. But you can thank the Colombian Arabica for that distinct cocoa and oak character.
